Audiologists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are aware of clients living in underserved areas with limited access to services. From early intervention through intervention for persons with acquired communication disorders of all ages, the current healthcare system is unable to provide for all who require assessment and treatment of communication disorders. The promising results of telecommunication technology to provide services may close the gap in some areas of healthcare. As the need for telepractice clinicians expands, a gap also exists in training programs preparing future clinicians to use this technology.
In this issue of Perspectives, two programs are presented using telepractice for early intervention for children with complex communication needs (CCN) and early intervention for infants who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. A report of survey results from Au.D. program directors regarding telepractice in curriculums is also included in this issue.
